It is the goal of many students to receive the grade of "A" in a course. Students typically aim to boost their grade point averages, maintain scholarships, and of course gain the most information possible from class. There are very few who aim to receive an average or below average (and failing) score.

As an instructor of over 20 years, I have had my share of co-teaching model experiences. Most of them were very good experiences. Some of them were difficult situations.

While it is sometimes difficult to explain these in a way a small kid can understand, it is very important to engage and encourage the kid's curiosity.
